6:15 pm
but we like having them here because we know it's one more precaution that we have in case of an emergency. >> other schools across the bay area and the country have stepped up security measures in similar ways. boeing's dreamliner has taken flight for the first time since it was grounded three weeks ago, but the 787 was only flying for testing. boeing officials say they are collecting data on the lithium ion batteries during these test flights as batteries for the problematic part of the plane that caused a fire on a previous flight. 50 have been groumded after a series of battery-related problems. nasa's curiosity rover has drilled into mars and sent back this photo of the hole. it's two and a half inches deep. powder from the hole will be transferred into the onboard laboratory for analysis. scientists believe it may hold evidence of a long lost water on the planet. >> those pictures are so

perfect, it's unbelievable. >> i finding it mind boggling we're up there doing that with a robot. all right, this is interesting. a pet insurance company gives out an award. each year for the most unusual claim. >> it's not a recognition to any pet owner would be proud to receive, but this year's top prize goes to a 6-month-old kitten in the oakland area. the siberian cat survived an entire cycle in the washer and walked away with only hypothermia. >> roommate was doing laundry, and he came in here and he dropped off some clothes and he left the lid open and shewander. he dropped off my clothes and didn't notice that she jumped in there. >> the insurance company uses the ham bones award. >> poor little cat. we're going check in with meteorologist rob mayeda on the
6:17 pm
weather. and it was just beautiful and it's going to get even warmer. >> yeah. you know, this is typically probably one of the wetter and snowier times of year for northern california, but the seven-day forecast does bring a chance of seeing some 70s coming our way a little later on. right now 40s and 50s outside, mostly clear skies. no fog, no high clouds and that's part of the issue tonight. it's like sleeping without a blanket for most of the bay area as this chilly dry air has settled in. winds are still out there. if you've got winds overnight that should keep your temperatures in the upper 30s and low 40s, but the wind-protected, wind-sheltered valleys, we're talking low 30s tomorrow morning. so a chilly start but a nice finish to the weekend. we could see more low 60s tomorrow. yes, the seven-day forecast, unfortunately it looks quite dry. we could use more rain and snow in the sierra, but on the flip side the weather will be gorgeous for any of your outdoor plans. doppler radar looking dry. it will stay that way for a while as high pressure is
6:18 pm
building in. because we're on the east side of that high pressure, kind of seeing these north winds or the clockwise flow spilling in some dry air from the north but this high is also setting up a blocking pattern out here in the west. you can see the storm track going up towards alaska, with this high settled off to our west. it's like a leaf blower in the upper atmosphere, no storms can form underneath this thing. it's going to move toward the coast. that's going to lead to warmer temperatures. daytime highs climbing, especially wednesday, thursday and friday. we should at least see some mid-60s inland locations around morgan hill and out towards livermore close to 70 for the second half of the week. so hour by hour you can see here this is a futurecast. we should see rain, we should see clouds, but there's really nothing out there. just some patches of low clouds at times near the coast but with the winds out of the north even the coast should be mainly clear heading through the day tomorrow. tomorrow's highs probably add 2 to 3 degrees for your high
6:19 pm
temperatures, so closer to 60 tomorrow around downtown san jose. should see low 60s around the tri-valley and 62 in fairfield. north bay with some north winds should see low 60s around santa rosa. still closer to the upper 50s in san francisco, but the trend is warming up heading towards the middle part of the week. there you see it, the seven-day forecast for staying dry. nicest days outdoors wednesday, thursday and friday. even the coast should see some 60s, so it's going to be nice weather second half of the week heading into next weekend. a few extra clouds, some cooling. but still looks really dry. so it's really good we had all that rain and snow in december because at this pointing starting to slip behind with the seven-day forecast looking that way. >> thank you, rob. plus we've got presidents' day coming up and ski resorts and everything else. >> valentine's day too. it looks great. for worries about any rain. just ahead, a golden opportunity for 49er fans. how you can leave your mark on the team's new stadium. diane says she's going to do it. find out about it next. ooh kfc. hey, you're supposed to wait for everybody.

6:24 pm
welcome back to nbc bay area. here are two words fans love to hear, free autographs.
6:25 pm
it was enough to attract 40,000 fans to giants fanfest today. great time out at the park. 30 players attended the event, including buster posey, pablo sandoval and tim lincecum. and the giants championship trophy was at at&t park as well. the early birds got in first, which made it a long day, but it was well worth it. >> hanging out waiting at the fronting. going to sprint up the stairs and try to get as many autographs as i can. brought the bat out. get as many signatures as i can get. put this in the trophy case. >> i'm here at the front gates ready to go this year hopefully to see some -- i'm looking toward to seeing lincecum and buster, anybody. i'm just happy to be here. >> it's really exciting to be here and just the energy, it feels like it's spring training. it's around the corner, so it's exciting. over to the third round at at&t pebble beach pro am.
6:26 pm
phil mickelson was putting together a nice round until the 18th. you see him slip on the rock looking for his ball. then after his drop, take a look at this swing. he puts it on the beach again. when it rains it pours. triple bogey on the 18th. he finished at 1 under, 11 strokes off the lead. your co-leader is this man, brandt snedeker. here he is with a nice tee shot on 17. he would par the hole. snedeker shares the lead with cal alum james hahn at 12 under par. let's chill on some ice for a second. coyotes and sharks. straight to the third period, a great pass to justin braun. great save by mike smith. not to be outdone, he's fighting to protect and he was okay. take another look at it, though. close is not good enough. on to the shootout we go. mchail, nice goal, top sheclf.
6:27 pm
then backhands it against nemi as well. >> we feel real comfortable playing these kind of games. i thought we carried the play for most of the night, definitely the second part of the night. it's unfortunate we lost in the shootout but we can bring a lot of things on this road trip and great game by nemo but we can build off a game like this. the san jose sharks are not the only team struggling. the golden state warriors are trying to avoid their fourth consecutive loss. right now they're in dallas losing 54-27. i mean this game is very ugly. back to diane and terry. this is getting out of control. >> henry, they can totally come back from that. i mean really. >> they just got in foul trouble early. don't worry about that. >> thanks for choosing nbc bay area news at 6:00.
6:28 pm
we'll see you back here tonight at 11:00. >> until then, good night. welcome to "class action." i'm jessica aguirre. we've recorded almost 100 episodes so we want to show you the best moments of the past year. lots of notable people in education visited the set. a lot of them have strong opinions, sometimes very controversial ones, about the state of our schools. the new superintendent of san francisco took the helm at a unique time this year. governor brown said that he would be forced to implement deep budget cuts if voters didn't pass new taxes for schools. and it was a very real threat to districts that are already reeling from steep funding losses. >> the depth of the crisis if the tax initiative, jerry brown's tax initiative don't pass in november? >> catastrophic. doom's day.
6:29 pm
defcon five. it's not even close. we're struggling as it is to stay afloat. we are so thankful to the voters of san francisco that have approved parcel taxes and initiatives to help us keep music and libraries and sports in our schools, but even with that support that we have from our community, without the life blood of a public school system, which is the funding you receive from the state, people are going to notice a difference in the educational quality. i mean it's -- i can't overstate it, that it's -- we are very precarious in terms of public education. not only in san francisco, but in the entire state of california. >> now, the battle at the ballot box between those two competing tax measures for schools took on epic proportions this year. molly munger, a wealthy civil rights attorney, spent nearly $44 million of her own money to take on prop 30. that's governor brown's proposal for schools. >> because 30 is going to keep our schools at the bottom
